Kansas City, MO - A Chiefs player on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic will be featured on HBO's Real Sports beginning tonight, Tuesday May 26th.

Not long after winning the Super Bowl in early February with the Chiefs, offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, a medical doctor, began volunteering at a long-term care facility in his native Quebec. 

In April, we wrote about Duvernay-Tardif being featured on a cover of Sports Illustrated, not as a Kansas City Chief football player exactly, but as a medical worker.

Duvernay-Tardif holds a doctorate in medicine, though he hasn't picked a specialty nor completed a residency program. 

HBO released a YouTube promo of its piece on Duvernay-Tardif:  

The latest installment of Real Sports will focus on the pandemic and its impact on the world of sports.  It airs on HBO tonight at 9pm Central Time.
